mawk – pattern scanning and text processing language

Synopsis

mawk is an interpreter for the AWK Programming Language.

History

Mawk was written by Mike Brennan. There was no maintainer for some time. I adopted it in 2009, starting with fixes from the Debian package, and resolving issues which its ostensible package maintainer did not respond to (initially Debian #496980, but upon review there were other reports not dealt with).

See the changelog for details:

Here are summaries of the amount of changes made since the original mawk 1.3.3 (plus Debian patches) at different dates. I have excluded generated files such as configure as well as the utilities config.guess and config.sub:

Download

Besides the gamut of *nix systems (including the Cygwin layer in Windows), I have built this with Visual Studio also. Here are binaries:

Like most of my projects, the source archives for mawk use RCS. For people interested in reading the development history of mawk, I have made exports from RCS to git here (on github):

There was an issue-tracking system at code.google, which is currently on github:

Packages

As noted, mawk has been neglected by some packagers (see for example this). For that reason, the list is presented in two parts.
